Thank you for your interest in Global Citizen Journey (GCJ). We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to creating connections and dissolving boundaries between communities all around the world. Our roots began in Africa and then India, but our aspirations are to facilitate the creation of a network of people that spans the globe.
GCJ journeys join hearts in conversation and hands in work by connecting U.S. delegates with citizens of a host country where they work toward a common goal and common understanding. In 2005, we took 20 delegates from the Puget Sound area to the Niger Delta in order to build the first library in the region in partnership with the Niger Delta Professionals for Development (NIDPRODEV). In 2006, we took a second group of delegates to Ghana to build an orphanage and community center in partnership with Western Heritage Home. Then for several years we worked in Liberia with 30 local peacebuilders. In 2017, we brought 12 westerners to join with 16 Indians in Pune, India at Maher, a community for destitute women and children.
Our next journey will be to Kashmir, India in October, 2018 with our host partner ELFA International. As we prepare for this journey, we will develop an online packet of information designed to be informative to the press.
